Wildlife in Care

At HideAway Haven we rescue, rehabilitate and release our precious wildlife.  Follow the story of our kids in care.


What an exciting day.  Joslyn came to visit me.  I haven't seen her for a long time so I made sure I got lots of hugs and cuddles.  We even had some selfies.  Joslyn played with Rocket and had cuddles with Holly.  The baby was out of KayDee's pouch and Joslyn saw the movement of a tiny baby in KayCee's pouch.  It was a fun couple of hours.  Thank you for visiting Joslyn, I have missed you.


Both my Mummies came to visit me again.  This time we stayed in the enclosure with all my other sisters and 2 brothers with us.  There were 11 all together.  My Mummies really loved hanging out with my new family.  They brought along lots of Albany Woolly Bush which I shared with everyone.  There were also some strawberries and bread but only Straya and me liked those.

Mummy pick me up and cuddled me on her lap, like she always did when I was still living at HideAway Haven.  It felt so good and so safe and warm.  I snuggled my head into Mummy's neck and promptly fell asleep.  A loud noise woke me up and I could see tears in both my Mummies eyes, it was a very special moment for all of us.  I know how much they love me and miss me and am so glad that they visit me lots.  

Mummy gave me my bottle and then Rocket wanted his bottle so Mummy was feeding us both.  Then it was time for Holly but she was too busy playing to stop for her bottle.  KayDee's baby 'Rooben' came out of the pouch.  Not sure how he fits in there anymore.

I am getting stronger every day and I have been out with the big kids now during the night.  I know Auntie Pauline worries about me, so I make sure that I knock on her bedroom at about 4:30am just to let her know that I am back and am safe.  I think she appreciates that.

Mummy and Joslyn came to visit me yesterday.  It was so good to see them and not just for the bucket full of tasty treats they brought me.  Blackberries, blackberry leaves, bamboo leaves, Albany Wooly Bush, apples and lots more, which all the kids in care shared with me.   I am getting stronger every day, thanks to Aunty Pauline and Uncle Kev's care. I am getting medication, oil and lots of massages.  The massages feel so good I usually fall asleep.  Before Mummy came I had been on a big run.  My first one in 4 weeks.  I raced around the house and paddock.  Aunty Pauline was watching me really careful to see if I slipped of fell over but I didn't.  It felt so good to race and stretch out my legs.  When I got back into my enclosure, the gate that separates the two was opened and I could see all the other kangaroos just laying around.  I wandered over and joined them in the shade.  There was Lily, Straya, Kaydee and Kaycee.  One of them has a baby who has its head popping out the pouch.  It was fun just hanging with the other kids.  I was really exhausted when Mummy came to say Hi and couldn't really get up, but she was so happy to see me.  We had hugs and cuddles, Mummy sat in the dirt with me and it was nice to be together.  Like old times.  Mummy did want to pick me up and put me on her lap, but I didn't like that.  "not in front of all my new friends please Mummy" .  Mummy was a bit sad because my sister Josie has gone missing.  She didn't want to come in on Thursday night and left without saying good bye.  Mummy is not sure if she has found a kangaroo mob to live with or if she has managed to get herself lost.  I missed seeing her this afternoon.  I hope she comes home soon to reassure Mummy she is OK.  

I will continue to live at Dreamers Dream for now.  It is the best place for me to ensure I get the proper care.  I need room to run but I also need the safety of fences so I don't get out and get hurt again.  Aunty Pauline and Uncle Kev love me and take good care of me and its fun having lots of new sisters and a couple of brothers to spend time with.  

Thank you Aunty Pauline and Uncle Kev for giving me a safe place to get better and looking after me with loads of love and care.
